East Bergholt High School

At East Bergholt High School, we are a community of professionals who are dedicated to providing the best possible education for our children. We have a supportive ethos that is underpinned by an excellent CPD programme both within the School and the Penrose Learning Trust. At EBHS, we strive for excellence in the classroom, provide a rich academic curriculum and offer a huge range of extra-curricular activities. We truly believe that all students should be provided with a rich educational experience, regardless of their background or starting points.

We are an 11-16 Academy situated in beautiful "Constable Country" on the Essex/Suffolk border. We are within easy reach of both Ipswich (10 minutes), Colchester (10 minutes) and Witham (25 minutes), and easily accessible from the A12. Learning is at the heart of our work. We care passionately about our students as individuals, and support and encourage them to achieve success in all aspects of School life.
